Greetings, dear readers, and welcome to our annual celebration of Christmas!
As in years past, the month of December will see "I Can Fly, Just Not Up" turned into a Musical Advent Calendar. Each day this month, tune in to hear a different Christmas carol. Some you may have heard before, and some may be new to you. Each piece of music has been carefully chosen for your enjoyment, and is my gift to you.
So, take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy one of the great pleasures of the season! I hope it will give you respite from the planning and preparation that is involved in "Making Christmas"... for this special holiday is about so much more than presents, decorations, and copious amounts of food (much of which is CHOCOLATE, but I digress...)
I hope these few minutes you spend listening to beautiful music will give you an opportunity to stop what you're doing; to breathe and reflect upon the true meaning of Christmas:
Love, and hope, and peace.
